We present a detailed analysis of the Galaxy Stellar Mass Function of galaxies up to z=2.5 as obtained from the VVDS. We estimate the stellar mass from broad-band photometry using 2 different assumptions on the galaxy star formation history and show that the addition of secondary bursts to a continuous star formation history produces systematically higher (up to 40%) stellar masses. At low redshift (z=0.2) we find a substantial population of low-mass galaxies ( 10^8 Msun at z=1), and a mild… 

The VIMOS VLT Deep Survey. Tracing the galaxy stellar mass assembly history over the last 8 Gyr

Aims. Our aim is to investigate the history of mass assembly for galaxies of different stellar masses and types. Methods: We selected a mass-limited sample of 4048 objects from the VIMOS VLT Deep

The stellar mass function of the most-massive galaxies at 3 ≤z < 5 in the UKIDSS Ultra Deep Survey

We have analysed a sample of 1292 4.5-mu m-selected galaxies at z >= 3, over 0.6 deg2 of the UKIRT Infrared Deep Survey (UKIDSS) Ultra Deep Survey (UDS). Using photometry from the U band through 4.5


We present measurements of the stellar mass functions (SMFs) of star-forming and quiescent galaxies to z = 4 using a sample of 95,675 Ks-selected galaxies in the COSMOS/UltraVISTA field. The SMFs of

The VIMOS-VLT Deep Survey (VVDS) - The dependence of clustering on galaxy stellar mass at z ~ 1

Aims: We use the VVDS-Deep first-epoch data to measure the dependence of galaxy clustering on galaxy stellar mass, at z~0.85. Methods: We measure the projected correlation function wp(rp) for

zCOSMOS – 10k-bright spectroscopic sample - The bimodality in the galaxy stellar mass function: exploring its evolution with redshift

We present the Galaxy Stellar Mass Function (GSMF) up to z~1 from the zCOSMOS-bright 10k spectroscopic sample. We investigate the total MF and the contribution of ETGs and LTGs, defined by broad-band

Brightest group galaxies: stellar mass and star formation rate (paper I)

We study the distribution and evolution of the stellar mass and the star formation rate (SFR) of the brightest group galaxies (BGGs) over 0.04 < z < 1.3 using a large sample of 407 X-ray galaxy


We investigate mass-dependent galaxy evolution based on a large sample of (more than 50,000) K-band selected galaxies in a multi-wavelength catalog of the Subaru/XMM-Newton Deep Survey and the UKIRT

The VIMOS VLT Deep Survey. Evolution of the major merger rate since z ~ 1 from spectroscopically con

Context: The rate at which galaxies grow via successive mergers is a key element in understanding the main phases of galaxy evolution. Aims: We measure the evolution of the fraction of galaxies in


We follow the galaxy stellar mass assembly by morphological and spectral type in the COSMOS 2 deg2 field. We derive the stellar mass functions and stellar mass densities from z = 2 to z = 0.2 using

Cosmic CARNage II: the evolution of the galaxy stellar mass function in observations and galaxy formation models

We present a comparison of the observed evolving galaxy stellar mass functions with the predictions of eight semi-analytic models and one halo occupation distribution model. While most models are



The Evolution of the Global Stellar Mass Density at 0 < z < 3

The buildup of stellar mass in galaxies is the consequence of their past star formation and merging histories. Here we report measurements of rest-frame optical light and calculations of stellar mass

We present a measurement of the evolution of the stellar mass function (MF) of galaxies and the evolution of the total stellar mass density at 0 < z < 5, extending previous measurements to higher

The Assembly of Massive Galaxies from Near-Infrared Observations of the Hubble Deep Field-South

We use a deep KAB ≤ 25 galaxy sample in the Hubble Deep Field-South to trace the evolution of the cosmological stellar mass density from z ≃ 0.5 to z ≃ 3. We find clear evidence for a decrease of the

High-z massive galaxies in the Hubble Deep Field South

A census of massive galaxies at redshift increasingly higher than z ∼ 1 may provide strong constraints for the history of mass assembly and star formation. Here we report the analysis of three
